Orosipon: Talaga, Magkakaigwa na sin Tren sa Sorsogon??


This is an interesting article from Manny Villar – Integrated Luzon Railway Project. According to the government site, it’s just a feasibility study (meaning, it may or may not be built at all). One can remember the MRT lines 2 and 3 were actually planned during the time of Marcos, and were only implemented after several administrations.

Awat ko na ini nababati na may plano na magkaigwa sin ferrocarril sa Sorsogon. San batit pa ako, igwa dida sa barangay road (Brgy. Bibincahan) sin naka-elevate na duta, siguro mga 1.5 metro hali sa baba. An sabi san mga gurang, para kuno idto dapat sa riles san tren pa-Matnog.

An mga kagurangan, nag iisturya sadto sa akun kun nano kagayun magbiyahe sa Bicol Express (sa mga dili tabi inabut an tunay na Bicol Express dili tabi ini an JB Line). May mga private rooms, may kaunan, nan makusog kuno an aircon. An biyahe kuno sadto hanggang Camalig, Albay.

An isturya pa san centenarian ko na lola, didi kuno namun nasusug an mga igmanghud namun sa Masbate.

Among the countries in Asia that were colonized by the west, only the Philippines who never tried to develop its railway system (back in the American occupation, even Panay Island has a railway system). After the war, PNR slowly deteriorated; it’s main asset is not its locomotives anymore, rather its vast land spread out in Luzon.

Sana man tabi madagus na ini, daku dako na tabang ini sa mga Bicolano, lain lang sa mga taga Sorsogon.
